Early Birthday Fun!

We decided to have a little party for Matthew yesterday so that we would have more time to celebrate.  His real birthday is Wednesday and we're most likely going to have a little cake that night too.  

This was the weather forecast.  

Besides that pesky flood warning, it doesn't get much better than that.  

We had big plans for our day.  

First we turned Matthew's car seat around so he's facing forward now.  

We went to City Park for a picnic.  We hadn't had a picnic at the park in a long time.  We brought sub sandwiches, cheese sticks, chips, juice boxes and fruit snacks.  

Then we went to play.

After we played for a little while we went home for presents.  

He was a bit perplexed and the boys had to open the presents for him.  But that's pretty typical.  

Here is a video after he was done opening presents.  

Then it was time for cupcakes and ice cream.  

Alyssa baked cupcakes last night and she and Faith put rainbows on the top.  

His expression is so funny because he looks a bit confused!  

Here's the video.  It sounds like a crowd is singing to him - but it's just us!!  

We sang and then I blew out the candle for him because he didn't know how to do it.  

Then the kids played outside on a new slip-n-slide.  

He had a lot of fun.  

We bought some bubbles to play with too and Matthew thought they were so funny.  

Then baths for everyone and a nap for Matthew.  

Hard to believe he's turning one already!

Great post. Great videos. Glad to see the shirt and shorts outfit is still around, amazing. Of course he looks confused, you started a fire on his tray. One already and the next thing you know he'll be six. Glad you all had a good day, wish we could've been there.

Luv ya, Grampa
